Miller’s Grill

Miller’s Grill (224 E. Capitol St., Jackson) is second only to Steve’s in terms of the number of times I’ve eaten there for lunch. It’s fast, it’s grilled and/or fried to order, and everything I’ve had so far has been tasty.

The burger patty may just be your standard thin-style patty, but it is well seasoned (salt and pepper, with more pepper than most burgers) and grilled right. There are plenty of topping options; I got basic cheddar and ketchup and was perfectly satisfied. The fact that the bun is warmed …

Froghead Grill

The initial appeal of the¬†Froghead Grill (121 Clinton Center Dr, Clinton) was that we were in the mood for cheese sticks, and we’d heard they had good ones. Then again, it’s hard to get fried cheese too wrong so we weren’t necessarily expecting much else from it. The location and building didn’t raise our expectations any–it’s in a row of Shoney-type places and looked like more of the same. But inside, it actually had character!

We started with the cheese sticks, and could understand why we’d heard good things. The batter …

After about a minute of taking in my surroundings as I sat in CS’s (1359 1/2 N. West St, Jackson) for the first time, I decided it was the coolest bar I’d been to in Jackson. I was ready to become a regular there–until I remembered that it is not actually a bar. It’s only open for lunch on weekdays, and I have a 9-to-5 job that prevents me from going to bars at lunchtime on weekdays.

The wooden interior is lined with old beer bottles, the walls are covered with …

Beatty Street Grocery

Beatty Street Grocery (101 Beatty St, Jackson) is a surprisingly popular lunch spot for somewhere that feels a bit like it’s in the middle of nowhere. Its nearest neighbors all seem to be strip clubs, but the restaurant is totally G-rated.

The number of lunch options is pretty overwhelming. I couldn’t fully take in the whole menu, especially since not all of the options were self-explanatory (at least to me), but I know they had six or seven types of po-boy (including the standard options, and a rib-eye that seemed to …

Ms. D’s Southern Cuisine

Ms. D’s Southern Cuisine (503 S. Gallatin St, Jackson) was high on my list of places to try as soon as I drove past it, completely because of how quaint and tiny the stand-alone brick building is.

Precious, right? Ms. D’s is cute on the inside as well. Only two women (either or both could have been Ms. D) were working, one at the counter and one in the kitchen. They handled the lunch rush really swimmingly and apologized unnecessarily for our brief wait.

The burger was a very good deal …

The Blue Rooster

A friend told me that the Blue Rooster (4822 Hwy 22, Flora) has the best burgers around. Then she told me I should call ahead to make sure they were open because they have unreliable hours, and I was there. I tend to have an affinity for places with unreliable hours.
Turns out they were open that Saturday for lunch (they may or may not actually have unreliable hours). They definitely do have some serious burgers.

This is the impressive Big Nasty: two patties with bacon, pepper jack, sauteed onions, etc, on …
